For the third poster in March we have the work from the previously featured designer Rasool Haghjoo from Iran. He born in Tehran and raised in Ahvaz is member of (IGDS) Iranian Graphic Designers Association and also a member of (ITPODA) Iranian Theater Poster Designers Association, about 20 years that Rasool work in art activities, such as theater, film and graphic design, participated in many graphic national and international exhibitions and competitions and won some awards.
The poster “Special Court” is belonging to a theater, written by russian writer “Vladimir Nikolajevic Vojnovic” and directed by theater director “Foad Abbasi”. This play is about a russian communist court, that is very brutal. The court intends to convict an innocent man and he’s wife to death, and finally they do. “I decided to use the real elements of communist’s symbol: “The sickle and the hammer”, and also I wanted to show prison wall-writing and torturing wounds by my typography. I think the result is match with the play” says Rasool.
